Philadelphia Eagles: Nick Foles tops the NFLPA’s sales list for the quarter
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles does it again.
Ladies and gentlemen, the Philadelphia Eagles and Nick Foles have done it again. Okay, they didn’t take home the ‘Best Team’ honor at the most recent ESPYs, but hey, you can’t have everything. Eagles fans will have to rest in knowing that training camp starts in less than a week, and ‘The Birds’ will begin their 2018 campaign as the reigning Super Bowl Champions.
They also have the luxury of knowing that they have two of the NFL’s best quarterbacks, and the backup is the reigning Super Bowl MVP, a best-selling author and he just took home an ESPY for ‘Best Championship Performance’.
Now it appears Nick Foles’ and the Eagles’ victory tour is heading down yet another avenue as the NFL Players Association released their quarterly sales rankings just this week.
Ladies and gentlemen, get you Nick Foles’ jerseys and T-shirts!
Cue the drum roll boys and girls. In terms of sales, the top five looks like this:
Dak Prescott of the Dallas Cowboys takes the fifth spot. He was edged out by rookie running back Saquon Barkley of the New York Giants.
Two Eagles took two of the top three spots as Carson Wentz came in at number three, leaving New England Patriots legend Tom Brady at number two and Mr. Foles at number one.
Check out the tweet from Darren Rovell. He’s both an ESPN Sports Business Reporter and an ABC News Business Contributor:
This is a list compiled by tallying sales that were made between the months of March and May. Just in case you’re keeping score, Foles replaced his teammate and friend Carson Wentz, who was in the top spot of this same list for the previous quarter.

Wentz also led the league in jersey sales for the period of September 1st through January 18th. When the season kicks off again, it’s a safe bet to assume you’ll see even more Wentz and Foles jerseys floating around.
